Column: Katy Perry only highlight of Sunday’s big game

January 28, 2015

The Super Bowl is this Sunday. Thank God. As much as I enjoy listening to Bill Belichick pretend he’s the Albert Einstein of football air pressure, I’m done with Deflategate. First of all, why do we feel the need to peg any and every scandal “something-gate?” The Watergate scandal was named after the hotel where Read More

Beyond the game

Gillette’s fast-paced offense too much for Generals

Column: Rooting for tanking

These days, sports media throw around the word “tanking” the way Scott Steiner threw around Sid Vicious in the wrestling ring in the late 90s, and, for the most part, they aren’t using it to describe Johnny Manziel partying at the Palms in Las Vegas. Tanking is the term used by fans and media alike Read More

Generals crush Casper: Generals shoot lights out to rout Casper 96-79

January 14, 2015

2015 is upon us. One of the best things that comes with every new year is the conference basketball season. As exciting as the college basketball season is, once it gets into the back half of the schedule, it tends to take you through all sorts of emotions. The new year bums you out when Read More

Column: Cooler than the other side of the pillow

January 7, 2015

Sundays tend to develop a pretty consistent routine: wake up, sift through garbage on Twitter, lay in bed with my dog until he’s licked my face enough to force me out of bed to let him out, eat a bowl of cereal, maybe a bagel, and then invest in some quality real estate on the Read More
